In an intervention in the Parliament in Brussels, Marisa Matias asked for clarification about what the future of the European project will be and pointed out that the European Union is “stuck between the blackmail of the so-called frugal and the blackmail of the aggressors of the rule of law”
"In an unprecedented crisis, we need an unprecedented response and we are facing an impasse that in no way helps the European project or those who are suffering from the crisis", said Marisa Matias in a video of her participation in the debate, published this Thursday , November 26, on Twitter.
"At this moment we are witnessing a European Union, a European project caught between the blackmail of so-called frugal and the blackmail of aggressors of the rule of law and democracy", guaranteed the presidential candidate supported by the Left Bloc.
“Assignment after assignment put us here and my question is: until when? What will be left of the European project? If we do not have a firm response of solidarity, if we continue to accept to accept the blackmail of those who do not want solidarity, if we accept the blackmail of those who want the rule of law to be just a boutonniere, what will remain of the Project European? ”Asked the MEP.
For Marisa Matias, it is necessary to “give an answer to this crisis and we need that answer to be in line with what are the concrete needs of the people who are suffering”. “We started this project and the committee chairwoman presented this proposal as being free of conditionality. We reached the end of this project with total conditionality, without even having the environmental goals to be fulfilled and even more with this shameful blackmail ”, he added.
We are experiencing difficult times and #European Budget insists on not reaching an agreement. After the blackmail of the “frugais” came the blackmail of the #Hungary and #Poland. It is the European project to fade…
